Transcript of Jimmy Carter

Jimmy Carter
Before Becoming President
I graduated from the Naval Academy in Annapolis in 1946. Soon after, I married Rosalynn Smith in 1946. We had 3 boys, John William (Jack), James Earl III (Chip), and Donnel Jeffery (Jeff), and a girl, Amy Lynn. I was the Georgia State senator from 1963-1967. Then, I was Georgia's governor from 1971-1975.
Life as President
I was a Democratic president from 1977-1981. My vice president was Walter Mondale. On my second day as president, I excused all evaders of the Vietnam War drafts. While I was president, the U.S. energy crisis happened. I supported energy conservation and installed solar panels on the White House. I visited Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Iran. In response to the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, I called for a boycott of the 1980 Moscow olympics. People didn't like this. It was the only time the U.S. hadn't participated in the present day olympics and the Soviet Union responded by boycotting the 1984 olympics. I lost the 1980 election to Ronald Reagan.
Life After Presidency
I founded the Carter Center, an organization that helps people worldwide with fighting disease and other problems. The Carter Center has been the elimination of 99% of Guinea Worm diseases. There were 3.5 million cases reported in 1986 to 148 in 2013 to 23 in 2015. I received the Nobel Peace Prize for this center. I am also an author. I have written 21-23 books, 2 co-written by Rosalynn. I got melanoma (a skin cancer), which metastasized to my liver and brain. I finished my treatment in 2015, about 4 months later. I'll be 92 this October.

James Earl Carter Sr. and Bessie Lillian Gordy were my parents. I was a peanut farmer. Our religion was Baptist. All my friends were African American and I was the only white child.
